Week 2: Sunday Walk in York (Local Walk)
York's one of the most beautiful cities in the country and the local walks will try to take in some of the countryside around the city, or sometimes part of the city itself. Please check you emails for where exactly we'll be walking on a local walk. Previous locations we've walked to have included Hagg Wood, Hob Moor, Langwith Lakes, Stockton-on-the-Forest and Bishopthorpe.
For Local Walks we meet at the Roger Kirk Centre and split into groups, with each group taking either a medium-length route or a longer route. All walks are preplanned and lead by our trained walk leaders.
Medium walks are generally between 6 and 8 miles (10-13 km) long, and tend to be at a reasonably gentle pace. Long walks are slightly more challenging and are between 10 and 12 miles (16-19 km) long. All groups aim to return back to the University by 3.00pm, though this is dependant on the pace of the group.
